In 2016, the Light Foundation was granted three Boston Marathon running bibs through the John Hancock Nonprofit Program to support our fundraising efforts. To honor this milestone and the motivated runners of our team “Speed of Light,” we hosted our first marathon kick-off party at Harpoon Brewery Beer Hall in Boston.
In just one year, our team expanded to include 10 runners in the 121st Boston Marathon. We celebrated their dedicated support at Splitsville Luxury Lanes and Howl at the Moon in Patriot Place. With special guests Nate Solder and Scott Zolak, live music, bowling and raffles, the night was a guaranteed success. Together, we raised over $110,000 for the Light Foundation!
Our 2017 runners trained through months of snowstorms to benefit our Foundation, only to complete 26.2 miles in the worst weather the Boston Marathon has ever had. We’re excited to continue Team Speed of Light and grow our team of dedicated supporters each year.
We're so excited to announce our 2019 Boston Marathon Team! Welcome aboard; David Clayman, Francesca Federico, Joshua Schwinghamer, Laurie Kelley and Michael Steur Jr.!
Thank you to our committed team of runners and The John Hancock Nonprofit Program for allowing us to continue this wonderful tradition. See you at Bolyston!
